The prize is awarded annually to education-related pieces, based on the analysis of and reflection on the practice, contributing to an improvement on education and strengthening renovations in teaching which promote, acknowledge and shed light on the renovating tasks of teachers and other educators who contribute to the improvement of education and the redevelopment of teaching.
